Interesting that this article contradicts the other article posted in the forum. This article says "Pure Foods" can trace back exactly where the honey came from (Argentina) the other article on the forum busted Pure foods.
"Mike Ingalls, president of Pure Foods Inc. in Sultan, recently stood beside a stack of brown steel drums in his warehouse. It's all marked "Organic Honey" and "Product of Argentina" -- and each drum carries a sticker with a tracking number.
"I can use that number to track the honey back to the supplier in Argentina and the specific beehives in latitude and longitude and degrees, minutes and seconds," he said, "so I can plot precisely where those hives were, and that they were at least six miles away from any cultivated crop."
Now this articlehttp://seattlepi.nwsource.com/local/394053_honey30.asp
I guess I am very naive and believed the organic honey labels, since this is what I buy. So sad
I was supprised the article did not grill pure foods on this statement, I think the series in the PI did a pretty good job of showing that,
a) you cannot guarantee which country the honey is from, let alone which hive.
b) Many if not all bulk packers will do whatever it takes to increase the profit margin
I also heard from a local respected beek, that the guy at pure foods has been keeping a low profile since the raid.
